Ann Jayaguru Shg Group's story

This group is called "Ann Jayaguru SHG" and consists of nine members who are all females from a small village in Odisha in the eastern part of India. They primarily work together but in different businesses like fish selling, animal raising, grocery shops etc.

Nilima is 37 years old and married with two children who are five and nine years old. She has been practicing her profession of dressmaking for a long time. Her main business is sewing and she has a good reputation. She learned in a sewing lab and when she gained more experience, she continued her own business.

She is requesting a loan of 225,000 INR from People's Forum for her group. She will use her portion to buy sewing materials such as fabrics, needles and threads to use for her business since competition has affected her sales a great deal and she needs more merchandise to offer her clients. She hopes to increase both her client base and her income.

All the group members are very excited to take this opportunity and all are very thankful to Kiva lenders for their support.

In this group: Nilima, Saraswati, Sasmita, Usarani, Guni, Jhuma, Nirmala, Kalpana, Bidulata
